ET is on the case with our top theories on the famous faces behind those elaborate masks.

*Caution: Spoilers ahead! (In case the headline wasn't enough of a warning.)

The Masked Singer returns Wednesday the Season 3 grand finale, and we're here to break down all the new clues, dish on the fun spoilers and collect all the hints about the finale three singers who battling it out for the Golden Mask! We're also here to keep track of everyone who's been unmasked, just like we did for season 1, and again for season 2 (where we nailed nearly every prediction).

From hints buried deep in the show's various clue packages to some of the internet's best guesses and aggregated deductions, we're compiling a comprehensive breakdown of every piece of evidence to try and crack the case of who's under each elaborate mask.

As more stars are unmasked as the season continues, ET will update this master list with new clues and theories about the celebrity inside each costume.


Michael Becker/FOX

The Clues:

-- From Episode 1:

1. Starts their clue package at a sound board in a radio station, and we see 23.3 The Wool on a screen.

2. Speaking into a radio mic, The Llama says, "Good morning nerd herd, you're listening to The Wool, where we're all cool, no bull."

3. Says, "I'm here for one reason only: to have a laugh. And what's funnier than a llama?"

4. We see a small jade Buddha sculpture on the desk.

5. We see a pair of playing cards, a Jack of Spades and an Ace of Spades, which could be considered a Black Jack (which feels like a real misdirect to get us to guess Jack Black, but we're not falling for it... yet).

6. We see a vinyl record with the words "Sounds of Seattle" on the cover.

7. Says, "You may call me a Joker, but I'd like to get serious for a minute. The song I'm singing tonight is my favorite track for celebrating love with that special someone. There's nothing quite like getting swept up in its deep, profound lyrics. It's a tune that really gets me in the mood for romance."

8. The Llama and another llama puppet re-enact the clay sculpting scene from Ghost.

9. After his performance, The Llama tells the panel, "This whole costume just spoke to me. It's my vibe and I wear things like this in real life."

-- From Ep. 2

1. Says, "LLama-ste [as in, Namaste] to all my woolly fans in the land."

2. Says, "I'm having such a good time here with my four legs. Now I want to keep the laughs rolling in."

3. We see him playing the accordion to an empty theater.

4. My strategy is to approach this competition the same way I approached my career. For a while, I was spinning my wheels, but then I started to envision my success, and to think on my feet."

5. Says, "I'll be the greatest of all time. The GOAT."

6. Tells the judges that, among his fellow contestants, "I was voted most likely to be near firing Cannons."

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: Kelsey Grammer, David Spade, Jack Black.

Our Best Guess: It's hard to tell this early on, but we actually think it might be Drew Carey. He's a co-owner of the Seattle Sounders FC, and in general it felt like it could be his style. Additionally, the "near firing cannons" clue could be a reference to his time in the Marine Corps.

And The Star Is...

... Drew Carey! We totally nailed this one. Carey told the judges after being unmasked, "The show looked like a lot of fun and I like having a goof and a lot of laughs... This is a great show! I had a blast. I'm so glad I did it."

The Clues:

-- From Episode 4:

1. The package is set on a track field and opens up on The Banana napping. We see a cowboy hat on the ground next to him, as well as red, white and blue stripes on the ground.

2. We see a quick shot of a blow fish on the ground.

3. This clue package has a narrative to it, which is weird. We see The Banana "12 Hours Earlier" dancing in a school bus alongside two women made entirely out of lettuce.

4. Says, "Oh no! I'm late for the stage. I can't believe I overdid it late night. You'd think this was my first rodeo."

- Says, "I'm the banana because I'm tough on the outside but a total smoothie on the inside and a hoot to have at parties."

5. We see a blue collar.

-- From Episode 5:

1. Says, "I never knew how cathartic becoming The Banana would be, so making it to the Group B championships is sounding more and more a-peeling."

2. There's a sign on the wall that reads "Bananagement Management."

3. We see a digital alarm clock. It reads "2:13 pm" and the "Month/Date" is set to "6/8" with an alarm set to "9:15."

4. Says, "I don't want to slip up, so when my team called me in for a meeting, I was like, 'Git 'er done!'"

5. Says, "I walked in, and these guys are nervous."

6. We see someone wearing black cowboy boots.

7. On the wall behind The Banana, we see a poster for different TV shows including "Sons Of Bananarchy" and "Banana CHIPS"

8. Says, "I said, 'Spit it out. You don't gotta hold my hand!' Finally, they say, 'Look, we have some concerns about your shelf life. So we think you could use a rebrand."

9. They show him a computer screen with a snake as a desktop image. And then a powerpoint presentation called "Banana Needs a Rebrand."

10. One of the rebranding suggestions is to "Star in your own show on cable." The image shows a mock-up for a series called "Banana Is the New Snack."

11. Says, "I've heard enough! I may be high in carbs, I may have a few bruises, but I'm still here after all these years. So tonight, I'm embracing my flaws and rocking out as my authentic self."

12. We see a clock on the wall that also reads 2:13 pm.

13. The Banana said his favorite subject in school was Art."It has gotten me through some of the toughest times in my life and I've had quite a few," The Banana said. "And tonight, even though I forgot half the lyrics, I was having the time of my life, forgetting about the troubles and having a good time."

-- From Episode 5:

1. Before the clue package even begins, we see him pranking two of the show's Men In Black with whoopee cushions.

2. Says, "I'm loving performing as The Banana, but last week I had a little setback."

3. Says, "My memory's not what it used to be, but I'm a real driven banana. Don't believe me? As these two lovely ladies."

4. We see two outlines of what appear to be other bananas, who are called the "Banana Fam." It looks like they're in "witness protection," as Ken jokes.

5. When asked what people would be surprised to learn about The Banana, one of the Banana Fam says, "That he's such a great role model."

6. The other Banana Fam figure says, "When we were younger, he taught us how to drive by getting us go-karts. He decided to build a race track in our back yard. He dug up all the bushes himself. Anything to make us smile."

7. The Banana Fam figures say that he's "been through a lot of heartburn in his life, but he's always been able to laugh through anything."

8. We see a mason jar filled with "jam," as well as a car jack, some bolts and some socket wrenches on a table.

9. He reveals his father recently died.

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: Darius Rucker, Brett Michaels.

Our Best Guess: The blowfish and the "hoot to have at parties" lead us to agree with Robin Thicke, and we're going to guess Darius Rucker (for now). Or maybe Michaels. It could really easily be Michaels too... this one's hard.

After Episode 6, we're sure it's Michaels. He's got two daughters, his father recently passed away, and all the other clue packages apply as well, including the cowboy hat and blue collar fame.

And the Star Is...

... Rocker, TV star and author Bret Michaels! The singer also spoke with ET on Wednesday and he reflected on his wild, often emotional Masked Singer journey.


Michael Becker/FOX

The Clues:

-- From Episode 1:

1. Her clue package takes place in a women's room and a high school hallway.

2. We see beauty products on a counter, including "Furspray" and some crystals.

3. Says, "When you become famous, people want you to look or act a certain way. They forget that you started off as just a shy little monster."

4. We see a metal key with a tag that reads "FUN."

5. Says, "It didn't take long for me to be misunderstood."

6. Says, "I'm here to set the record straight. Just like my favorite creature in Season 1 did, The Monster.  He made me feel. He re-wrote his story. It was fire."

7. We see a locker with the No. 10 written in red above it, next to a locker labeled '11.' Inside the locker are dozens of photos of The Monster, which she kisses.

8. Says she wants to "follow in [The Monster's] furry footsteps."

9. Says, "But darlin', I feel nervous. Will you still love me without knowing my name?"

-- From Episode 2:

1. Says, "I'm happy people loved my first performance, even without know who I was."

2. Says, "No I can just focus on being an artist."

3. She recreates the nude sketching scene from Titanic, and draws The Monster from Season 1, who asks her to "Draw me like one of your French monsters."

4. She's drawing a butterfly on a piece of paper.

5. We see a Queen chess piece.

8. Says, "You've gotta stand up for yourself and just dance."

9. Says, "Tonight, I want you to see I'm just like Mr. Monster: Capable of anything and full of love!"

10. Tells the judges that, among her fellow contestants, "I was voted most likely to be in the presence of royalty."

-- From Episode 3:

1. Says, "I love performing under this mask, because I get to prove that true art comes from within."

2. She introduces us to her hair stylist.

3. Her stylist -- who looks like The Monster from Season 1, but with a mustache -- says Miss Monster is his "spiritual mom."

4. We see a slice of pizza hanging on a clothes line, along with a black-and-white checkered teddy bear with a green scarf,  a pair of white socks and some camo fabric.

5. Her stylist says, "I was intimidated to meet her at first, but like many misunderstood monsters, she wasn't scary at all."

6. Her stylist says he was 18 years old when he became her stylist, after her usual person was late and she needed to get ready for a big event.

7. He says, "All she had was her curling iron in her purse, but I made it work. And trust me, you can't hurry good hair."

8. He says, "Miss Monster has been through a lot, and she hasn't always been seen in the press for who she really is. She's all about spreading love, and that's what she's doing here on the stage."

9. She reveals a Valentines' Day card clue written to Robin: "I only have eye for you. We even had a rendezvous in Sin City."

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: Chaka Khan, Missy Elliot, Mary J. Blige, Tanya Tucker.

Our Best Guess: Either Tanya Tucker or Chaka Khan. Tucker was born on 10/10, where as Chaka Khan has 10 GRAMMYs and worked with Mary J. Blige (which could account for Miss Monster's line about being "misunderstood").

After the second episode, we're locked in on our Chaka Khan guess. She's known as the Queen of Funk, and also nearly every one of her songs features the word "love" in their titles, which would account for the romance subplots of her clue packages and her "full of love" clue.

And The Star Is...

... Chaka Khan! We totally called it, yet again!



Michael Becker/FOX

The Clues:

-- From Episode 4:

1. Says, "Newsflash! My metamorphosis has been anything but typical."

2. The package is in black and white and has a '20s Newsies vibe.

3. We see a newspaper with a headline that reads "Tadpole plucked from large creek" and "Toad's Crazy Ride Begins," as well as "Frogs Are Jumping! Frogs Are Jumping!"

4. The VERY fine print on the paper suggests The Frog "had some interesting eating habits, and I'm not just talking about dining on flies."

5. Says, "I leapt to stardom as fast as a lightning bolt. Never had a chance to evolve my image and do things my way."

6. We see a paper bag marked "Leftovers" and some meatballs on the floor.

7. Says, "I was slithering with the big frogs from jump, jump. Just had to fit in and survive."

8. We see a poster for what looks like the Olympics. It reads "1996 Games. 1000-Meter Leap Frog."

9. Says, "But now, I can write my own masterpiece. And showing this new side gives me butterflies in my stomach. But I'm ready to drop the hammer and sing my face off."

10. We see what looks to be an old-school radio mic.

11. The Frog stands news to a wall with a $100 bill,  a $5 bill and a $1 bill (for a total of $106).

12. As the judges point out when he first takes the stage, he seems to be pretty short.

-- From Episode 5:

1. Says, "Last week, I feel like I got a new lease on life."

2. Says, "It makes me wonder! Why haven't I felt like this before?"

3. We see him in an old-timey office with a vintage typewriter on his desk, as well as a basketball and some toy soldier army men figures.

4. On the typewriter, the keys "S," "C" and "I" are highlighted.

5. Says, "From the beginning, I sacrificed so much of myself to be all that in a frog-eat-frog world."

6. We see a picture of a Hollywood Walk of Fame Star and a price tag for $19.00."

7. Says, "[I was] always shootin' to be seen as the prince of my game. And that image took a toll. I almost croaked."

8. The paper in the typewriter says "Not every frog wants to be a Prince."

9. Says, "Last week showed me I could just be me and still be loved, warts and all. So no more golden crown for this prince. I'd rather have the golden mask any day."

10. As for his favorite school subject clue, The Frog says, "My favorite subject was actually PE. That's gym, for those that don't know. The one thing I love about it was the fact that it keeps me in shape, so I can bust these dance moves that make the ladies go crazy."

-- From Episode 6:

1. We see him in a police interrogation room.

2. Says, "Being on that stage has been unusual. But I'm loving every second. And I'm too ribbit to quit."

3. We are introduced to a woman who was with The Frog when his career "jump started" and who was "so instrumental, but barely seen."

4. The Woman, referred to as "Frog's Team Member," is introduced as living in a palatial estate, wearing a fur coat, but is totally invisible.

5. She says, "I've known The Frog since he was a tadpole. I knew immediately that he'd be a superstar."

6. We see a bottle of shampoo and some combs.

7. She says, "I looked out for him when he was in L.A. and even then he had an entourage."

8. She says she remembers taking him to his first late night talk show, adding, "It was way past his bedtime, but I let it slide."

10. She says, "Life hasn't always been easy for him, but he's persevered and paved the way for so many people. I couldn't be more proud."

11. He gives a bracelet to T-Pain that says "All We Do Is Win."

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: Bow Wow, Alfonso Ribeiro

Our Best Guess: This one is tough, but we're gonna make a left-field guess and suggest Wanya Morris of Boyz II Men, based mainly on the fact that they performed live at the 1996 Olympics. This one is, admittedly, a long shot.

Eh, we're pretty sure we were wrong. Bow Wow seems like the best possibility. He had an album called The Price of Fame that came out when he was 19 (hence the "fame" star with the $19 price tag). He also hosted 106 & Park (hence the $106 clue from Week 4). The basketball clue could be referring to his movie Like Mike. There's just a lot going on there



Michael Becker/FOX

The Clues:

-- From Episode 4:

1. Says, "Just like a mouse, I am small and cute."

2. We see the mouse cheering on some football players practicing on a field, using a little megaphone.

3. Says, "Don't let my size fool you, my presence is larger than life."

4. Says, "I've always been a leader in my field."

5. Says, "I wrote the playbook." And we see a white board with the words, "Bang Bang Formation." Also, the cardinal directions "N, W, S" are all written in blue, and the "E" is in orange."

6. Says, "As much as I love calling the shots and showing everyone who's the boss, I also love having a walk-on role to play."

7. We see two football player with jersey numbers 19 and 79, and the team name is "Warriors."

8. Says, "They say, 'Don't sweat the small stuff.' But now that I'm putting myself in, you should Because I never accept anything less than gold."

9. We see gold pompoms.

-- From Episode 5:

1. Says, "The stage is like my second home, and I'm having a ball up there. So I feel more determined than ever to stay anony-mouse."

2. Says, "When I leave my good job in the city, there's no place like my home squeak home."

3. We see a few of The Mouse's home decorations, including a framed drawing of praying hands and a bronze rhino bust.

4. Says, "You'd think I ought to take a break, but I still have more stories to tell. And why quit something that still feels exciting and new?" 

5. Says, "I truly cherish my rare time off to catch up on my favorite things: Starting a good romance novel, a little needle point - my secret talent -- and a wine and cheese to bond with my friends like you."

6. We see her eating what look to be Brazil nuts.

7. Says, "Thanks for stopping by my mouse pad, but now it's time for this Hostess With the Mostest to get her game face on, because their ain't no stopping me now!"

8. As for The Mouse's favorite subject in school, "It was actually math. My dad told me, 'Well you look at those numbers, and you know that those numbers represent your money.'"

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: Dionne Warwick

Our Best Guess: We're also on board the Dionne Warwick bandwagon. She's 79 (like the jersey from the clue package) and also, it's what Robin guessed, and when it comes to knowing the voices of legendary singers he's got a good track record.

And The Star Is:

... Dionne Warwick! We totally called it! As did all of the panelists, except for Ken Jeong (who suggested it was Tina Turner).



Michael Becker/FOX

The Clues:

-- From Episode 1:

1. His clue package takes place inside a mad scientist's laboratory.

2. There's a periodic table of elements on the wall, and the show's Men in Black running around in lab coats. They point to the elements Pt (the symbol for Platinum).

3. Says, "What makes the perfect Masked Singer? One part creativity, and one part drive."

4. We see one of the scientists crashing a toy skateboard into a toy fire truck.

5. Says, "I relate to robots, because I've always felt the need to put on a tough outer shell. I think that makes me come across as inhuman, and it's stunted my potential."

6. Says, "I've had my fare share of fame in certain circles, but I'm here to tip the scales, and show that I can be relatable to everyone."

7. Says, "I really do have a heart and love to give."

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: N/A

Our Best Guess: Revealed before we had a chance to guess! But from the costume alone, we were hoping Bill Nye, the science guy. It wasn't him, though.

And The Star Is:

... Lil Wayne! The rapper shocked the judges -- who had no idea it was him -- and revealed that he chose to perform as The Robot because he knew his kids would enjoy it.

9. Says, "To all you survivors out there, this one's for you."

10. "One of my greatest fears is being vulnerable, and this year I've had no other option but to be vulnerable," The Kangaroo shared after her performance. "But in this costume, I can get my super powers back."

-- From Episode 2:

1. We see a sign that says "Kangaroo Kourt." (Implying she was unfairly judged or convicted by someone about something, perhaps in the court of public opinion? But also possibly a Kardashians reference?)

2. Says, "Keeping it 100, recently it seems like I've been watching my life from the sidelines. And to be honest, it's scary putting myself in the spotlight again."

3. Says, "Sometimes it feels like everyone is against me. But I know I just need to have courage and get back in the game."

4. We see some cosmetics and make-up on a bench.

5. She plays basketball with a bunch of guys wearing the number 23 on all their red jerseys.

6. Says, "I'm already feeling more confident, and I'm determined to make the most of this fresh start."

7. One of the people playing basketball has the name "Deejay" on his jersey.

4. He says, "The Kangaroo is my older sister by only one year, but honestly, I've always looked up to her."

5. He says she was "a bit of a drama queen in her teenage years."

6. In a garden patio, we see a toy model airplane hanging from the ceiling, as well as a boom microphone.

7. He says she's "the most resilient person I know."

8. He says, "When tragedy hit our family, she was the glue that held us all together. And since then, we've only gotten closer."

9. We see a yarn statue of an angel standing  on the floor in the corner.

10. He says, "Her grace under pressure and ability to rise above the haters is always something I've admired."

11. We see an old parasol in the background.

12. He's says he "could be more proud," and adds, "I love you sis! Knock 'em dead tonight."

13. The Kangaroo reads a Valentine's Day card clue to Leah Remini: "We've sat at the same table, and your courage has inspired me."

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: Jordyn Woods, Bindi Irwin, Lauren London, Demi Lovato.

Our Best Guess: This is easily the hardest one to guess thus far, but let's just say Bindi Irwin. Mostly because we'd love for it to be her (even though it doesn't sound like her), but also because she was on Dancing With the Stars, and The Masked Singer has a shocking amount of overlap between those show.

After the second episode, we're switching up our guess (but keeping our original up and struck-through for transparency). It seems that Jordan Woods is the best bet, now. Not all the clues make total sense, just yet, but the cosmetics, the "Kangaroo Kourt" and the "little 'roo" clue all seem to point to Woods.

And The Star Is:

... Reality star and actress, Jordyn Woods! ET inteviewed Woods after her elimination, and she opened up about her musical plans for the future and who inspired her to sign up for the show.

11. We see a poster with George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Franklin with the quote "Four score and Seven Years Ago..."

12. Says, "I'm ready to get in that ring and smash the competition! Let's party."

2. His clue package takes place in a high school library. There's a "No Talking" sign on a table, and one of the show's Men In Black sleeping at a table.

3. We see a book called "Wild World of Cats."

4. Says, "I'm putting in the time to hone this new craft."

5. We see a blonde woman in a pink sweater in the library! Could this be someone related to the star under the mask? This is new for the clue packages. They usually only have the show's Men In Black in them.

6. Says, "I'm putting in the time to hone this new craft. To put the mass in Mask. 

7. We see a photo of a skiing cow.

8. Says, "My motto is, 'Work hard, play harder.' I'm no stranger to celebrating, I love a good block party. And this may sound kinda crazy, but dancing heals my body after taking a beating. So I'm ready to cut a rug on that stage tonight and tear it up."

9. He rips apart a pinata in the shape of a horse.

10.  Tells the judges that, among his fellow contestants, "I was voted most likely to go to the mat for a friend, and I did, literally!"

-- From Episode 3:

1. Shows off some dance moves, in a segment before his clue package. He's apparently very proud of his dancing prowess.

2. Says, "Look who's still here! Shocked? Me too!"

3. Says, "I knew going into this competition, I was never going to be the best singer. But I wasn't gonna let that stop me. I've always known how to work a crowd, and that's been my strategy here all along."

4. He introduces his old college buddy, who says they were roommates during freshman year. The College Buddy appears to be a bar tender, and has a darboard for a mark.

5. The College Buddy says, "Man was he fun! One time, we met these two smoking hot ladies at the club." He says that White Tiger "knew exactly what to do to edge out our competition" among the other men at the club.

12. The White Tiger reads his Valentine's Day card clue to Jenny: "Jenny, I'm wild about you. But I know your husband will appreciate this card even more."

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: John Cena, Rob Gronkowski.

Our Best Guess: It's Rob Gronkowski. It just is. It sounds like him, moves like him and just is him. Additionally, he played for the New England Patriots (hence the poster with the presidents), and "Four score and Seven Years Ago" means 87 years ago, and 87 was his jersey number. Additionally, from the second episode's clue package, we're pretty sure the blonde woman is his longtime girlfriend, Camille Kostek. As for the skiing cow picutre, his name is Rob Gron-COW-SKI. It's absolutely Gronk.

And The Star Is:

... Former NFL star Rob Gronkowski! We called this from literally half-way through the first clue package!



Michael Becker/FOX

The Clues:

-- From Episode 1:

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: Hunter Hayes, Tom Felton, Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Our Best Guess: The clue about leaving his home planet to search for the chance to explore new opportunities sounds like it could be someone who moved from one country to another for a chance at fame. So perhaps someone who moved to Hollywood from Europe? Maybe? 

We're pretty sure it's Hunter Hayes. Aside from the fact that is sounds like him, the clue that really gives it away is when his "bro-pilot" says he "took a huge nose dive" in front of thousands of people. Hayes once got a lot of backlash for his performance of the National Anthem before a World Series game in 2016.

And The Star Is:

... Country crooner Hunter Hayes!

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: So, so many guesses. No one seems to have anything close to a consensus.

Our Best Guess: Um... we'll get back to you after writing a bunch of names on a board and throwing a dart.

Throwing darts didn't really help, but the Episode 5 clue package did, a bit. We think it's either Sarah Hyland from Modern Family. There was a Modern Family reference in the Episode 5 clue package. And, well, look, we're working with what we got here. This one's impossible.

OR, now here us out, it might be Michelle Trachtenberg! She was on Gossip Girl, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Are You Afraid of the Dark?

And The Star Is:

... 20-year-old best-selling singer Jackie Evancho! She also spoke with ET after her elimination and dished on her experience being a part of the show.

... Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron! (Totally called it!)

6. We see The Rhino grilling something in a pan while standing on the wing of a plane. He tossed whatever he grilled up to a Man in Black, who is also on the wing. The Man In Black caught the food in a bread roll, and then cuts the role with a knife while wearing a giant diamond ring. It's a super weird series of images and even the panel looks more confused than usual.

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: Trace Adkins, Tim McGraw, Barry Zito

Our Best Guess: The clues about Faith seem too obvious for it to actually be Tim McGraw, but it's the best fit, thus far.

The growing internet theory that The Rhino is baseball player-turned-country singer Barry Zito is making more and more sense. He was a pitcher (hence a pitcher of Ice Tea during one clue package), he sang at the Grand Ole Opry, he co-wrote a song called "Butterflies" (and there were butterflies in one package) and he's 6'2", which also tracks.

And The Star Is...

... former MLB superstar and country music crooner Barry Zito!

The Internet's Most Popular Guesses: Jojo Siwa

Our Best Guess: This is another instance in which the Twitter masses are almost certainly correct. Everything about The T-Rex's clue packages, color scheme, dance movies and general personality indicate its Jojo Siwa. The only ones who can't see it are the judges.

And The Star Is:

... Former Dance Moms star, singer and YouTuber JoJo Siwa -- whom we spoke to after her elimination on why she chose the T-Rex costume and how she felt about her time on the show.

The Masked Singer airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox. ET will be following along each week with a Masked Singer after-show every Wednesday night.
